    Why HP does not require to put Keywords in our Hubs?

    In Past we had to put at least 2 keywords to start a new Hub. But now there is no option to include keywords in our Hub. Why is that? I know the fact that Search engine can craw keywords from the Body and Title of the Hub. But does excluding the keyword option increases the SEO of the overall site?

    It is now done automatically, because people abused it by placing irrelevant keywords.

    Also, Google doesn't depend so much on keywords anymore.

    I believe you are referring to "Tags" not keywords. They are not the same. Hubpages deleted that feature since it's basically useless. Tags are plainly used for grouping and Hubpages already have that feature which is probably why it was omitted. I've been using certain keywords in my hubs and it does pay off.
